    Pros

    Cannot think of one positive thing about the experience. Benefits are not great. Top heavy on management. Wastes resources on things that don't matter.

    Cons

    This place is like an outdated high school. Adult bullies everywhere. No integrity. Everyone from the C-Suite down is living in their own alternate reality. There is no honesty and anyone who tries to do things by the book is immediately ostracized. They talk about culture and don't lead by example. People with seniority are allowed to terrorize new employees with fresh ideas. It's as though they are stuck in the 1950's and want to stay there.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. Management is the problem.

    I worked at Fairfield Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    The front line employees are wonderfully dedicated people who believe in serving their community

    Cons

    The culture changes have provided dishonest management with tools to use against employees. Some do not live the culture and unethically drive out employees who do not fall in line or disagree with them. FMC began cleaning house to improve the culture but failed to complete the process resulting in a continued culture of employee targeting and fear of job loss.

    Advice to Management

    Some need to move on. Leadership needs to cut their losses and force them out. I loved my job and who I worked with but hated how the management made me feel. Unethical decisions and behaviors have interfered with patient care and business management. FMC has a long way to go.

    I worked at Fairfield Medical Center part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some great nurses, Great heart team, Great outpatient surgery centers, Takes great care of employees, Some truly caring doctors. A lot of the staff are wonderful people.

    Cons

    Too top heavy- management makes many decisions that look good on paper but do not work in practice. Understaffed, poor facilities, many stupid/unrealistic policies. A lot of older doctors who do not conform to modern culture trends where doctors work as a team rather than as GOD himself. Many unsafe practices and "near misses" that go unreported. Not equipped to handle large traumas, but they do well with stabilizing and shipping the critical patients up to CBUS. Departments are VERY clique- oriented with entire departments disliking and being rude to other departments. Pay is not the best. The patient population is incredibly addicted to heroin so many patients are overdoses and addicts.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe instead of having a fully stocked doctor's lounge and other wasteful spending, start investing more and more money into the current building itself and the medical programs within. FMC is currently trying to take on too many projects and is spreading itself too thin. Remodel the towers, add on, do SOMETHING to attract high quality physicians and other clinicians in order to grow the different medical programs offered.

    Pros

    Decent pay, good pto,

    Cons

    Management not readily available. Too many cliques and high school drama. The culture they brag about is nowhere to be seen. I've seen many people leave because of this one reason. Many, many adult bullies here!

    Advice to Management

    Take time to actually listen to your employees concerns. Don't favor certain people over others. You are losing good people!
